    Post Mail App

    I only had a problem with the mail app when using it to access my ISP mail account directly. Since setting up Gmail and forwarding my accounts to there I've had no problems with syncing my mails, contacts, calendar entries, chats etc. Strangely my surface is more reliable for chats than my win8...

    Post [Q] Lumia 800 Battery life

    I've not done any monitoring but I though I'd throw in my 2 cents too... I have found my device to have a very short battery life when charging off the bundled uk plug adapter..however...if I charge my lumia from a USB socket on my laptop or PVR then I get up to 2 days battery instead of just...

    Post Just can't say goodbye....

    The HD2 is an amazing phone, I've given away 2 upgrades to friends and am still using my HD2...albeit not on wm6.5. I'm using Android and WP7...for this reason alone it's still, IMO, the best phone available for its versility and power.

    Post [8.1.13][SD/MAGDLR] MccMBoxmaX GS V12 Android 2.3.3[Sense 2.1+3.0]3D Final

    Mine works fine after renaming the folder to 'Android' and booting. It crashes on first boot then I replaced the data.img with the original and now it works fine for me on MAGLDR

    Post [8.1.13][SD/MAGDLR] MccMBoxmaX GS V12 Android 2.3.3[Sense 2.1+3.0]3D Final

    This can be fixed, at least for me, by replacing the data.img with the one from the original download...not sure why though. This has to be the smoothest, most bug free, fast build I've ever used on my HD2!! A+!

    Post [APP] RockClock - FREE Alarm Clock

    Sorry friend but I was forced to discontinue my Windows Mobile development completely. I flashed my HD2 to WP7/Android and haven't got another WM device :( The project became 'open source' though if you can compile it and it can be found here...

    I was simply re-iterating what other people have said - DFT have the right to do what they want with THEIR development tools. You'd have to be an idiot not to understand that. And by that you mean?!?... I'm sure DFT would love to hear what you 'realise'

    Post [Q] WhatsApp for WP7?

    According to the developers of WhatsApp there are no plans to support WP7 until various aspects of the OS are changed/updated. It's to do with the way apps are run on the OS. Because WP7 apps are run in a 'sandbox' style environment WhatsApp cannot access the WP7 built in contacts app etc so...

    Err... NO. There is little to no point asking DFT. As stated MANY, MANY, MANY times previously in this thread - they will release it when THEY are ready and not before. From the looks of the video that was released previously they are currently working on NoDo, Mango and a new MAGLDR. It...

    A lot of people I spoke to whilst leaning programming didn't want to help with the Visual Basic side of things and started moaning about me not using C# - but that was my choice to make. So I make this post with similar minded people in mind - maybe there is someone else out there that doesn't...

    Post [08/08][ROM] blackSideSeven v1.13.7401 NoDo

    Not my ROM but the simple answer is NO. Reading the FAQ's for ALL other WP7 ROMS would have answered this for you. The key cannot be remapped because you wouldn't have a hardware camera button at all and it's a device requirement for WP7.

    Any chance we can condense the 'activation code' and 'chevron' threads into their own sub-forums or even a wiki? Trailing through the forums has become a little tedious from all the duplicate, reworded, posts. Surely it would be better to have a wiki or single accurate thread for each with...

    Not true....You can do it manually if the shutter bothers you, using TouchXplorer (provided your device is Chevron unlocked). I was actually replying to your 'Post 1' (which is what I quoted) as I know that you could rename files etc programmatically in the old Windows Mobile - what I was...

    Post [XAP] SHCameraApp - alternative camera for WP7. version 0.6.3 (Mango support)

    I have no clue when it comes to the actual coding but as a tempoary fix couldn't you just rename the 'shutter.wav' file in the windows folder to something else programatically...if this file is deleted or renamed the shutter doesn't sound?

    Post Make your own WP7 APP Online

    had a bit of a play with this earlier and it actually works quite well for a beta. Would love to see the ability to return to a previous project and edit it, and some more customisation options, but hopefully that would come in the future.

    Post is wp7 boring

    Found it boring at first but once you actually get involved with some of the non stock apps then it gets interesting. I much prefer the way the UI works to Android although, as others have said, more customisation would be good. Am now dual booting WP7 with Android (mainly for Wi-Fi tethering)...

    I had this 2 days after installing it on my HD2 but it sorted itself out by the next day and I've now been running it since release with very few issues. Camera works great since changing the language to English (US) and getting the extra options. Also, it seems that the problem with the...

    This is kind of the point!

    This is by far the best UI I've come accross so far. Love the customisation options and the fact it's a standalone app unlike LeSScros 'theme' (can't stand WAD2 etc). This runs much faster and smoother than Jaxbots theme and this has far more options, although I am missing the animated tiles...

    Post WP7 features (or lack there of)

    I would say this is probably down to developers. iTunes for idevices does allow transfering of files, just not file system access. For example: programs like VLC...BUT vlc had to be approved by Apple and Apple allowed direct file transfering via iTunes. This will probably come from MS with...
